The Pertemps Final Hurdle is a Listed National Hunt hurdle race. It is the second race on the Thursday of the Cheltenham Festival and is open to horses aged 5 years and older. The race is run on Cheltenham’s new course and runners must jump 12 hurdles on their way round. The race is a handicap race which has been won by horses carrying heavier and lighter weights.
The race has seen several big price winners in recent years so punters should look for the value rather than looking at the favourites. There has only been to single priced winners since 2003!
Jonjo O’Neill is the trainer with the best record in the Pertemps Final Hurdle having won it 4 times. So it may be worth watching out for any runners he might have this year
